Let’s talk supervised injections sites

Safeguarding the health and safety of our community is paramount.

There are four safe injection sites being proposed in Edmonton including one in our community of Edmonton Griesbach.

It’s important that you’re kept informed of the process and that you have the opportunity to voice your views and concerns.

I hope you can join me for my town hall on Thursday, March 30. And, don’t forget to invite your friends and family.

Ukraine is in need of support from Canada

In the face of ongoing Russian military aggression, Liberals have announced minimal measures to help Ukraine. While the extension of Operation UNIFIER is positive, it is the bare minimum. 

As a friend and an ally, Canada has a moral duty to stand with Ukraine. Here’s my speech from the debate on the extension of Operation UNIFIER.

Honoured to build community with faith group leaders

I was pleased to host an interfaith roundtable with faith group leaders from our community of Edmonton Griesbach.

Building relationship with community leaders is essential to being a good representative for my constituents.

We had a great conversation on important issues impacting our community including crime, poverty, refugees and interfaith outreaches.

All participants offered valuable ideas and insight. Together we can all help build a healthier and stronger community.

Thanks again to everyone who participated!
